. >>> mike, ask you about a piece you have up about paul ryan. you say it's paul ryan's disappearing act. his stock could not have shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of

arthritis cap. >>> senator rand paul is rested and ready to filibuster again. this time, over gun control. he and two other tea-back party senators, senator ted cruz and mike lee are threatening to hold up any and all gun legislation. in fact, they might not even have to speak at all to do it. just withhold unanimous consent and prevent the senate to proceed to even debate the issue. "we will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions." now, "roll call" however, reports the new filibuster rules adopted in january could actually thwart their attempt. the white house was unamoosed at this attempt to silence the debate over gun control. as was one of the fathers of the victims of the sandy hook shooting. >> all i've heard is the second amendment, the second amendment. and it's not about the second amendment. it's about saving children's lives and innocent people's lives. >> joining us now, joy reid, managing editor of the grio.com, and john sultz, chairman of votevets.org. welcome to you both. joy, i am going to st

with both feet. consider on tuesday paul endorsed a version of immigration reform that would allow the 11 million or so undocumented immigrants in this country to become legal. the week before he defied the hawks in his party to lead a 13-hour filibuster in protest of the obama admission's secretory over its drone war fare program. >> dan senor, you've been involved in republican presidential primaries lately. sorry about that. how would those issues stack up in new hampshire and iowa and south carolina and florida? >> i think the politics, his politics on pure fiscal issues will have tremendous resonance as his father experienced in some primary states and caucus states. i think what is untested is -- from a -- from a political standpoint is his position on foreign policy. his father never really broke through on the neoisolationist politics at the grassroots level beyond a narrow segment of the electorate. rand who i've spent time talking about these issues is much salvier than his father. >> his father blamed in effect u.s. foreign policy for 9/11. i haven't really dug in deep t

laid out. >> much like the paul ryan house plan, the senate blueprint is a statement of priorities. ryan's plan consists entirely of spending cuts, $4.6 trillion of them, 66% of which come from programs for poor and working-class americans. on the other side, democratic plan calls for $100 billion in stimulus and an even ratio in spending cuts to new revenue from closing tax loopholes on higher earners. surprising no one, the senate's balanced approach was rejected wholesale by republicans. in their response to president obama's weekly address, tea partiyer mike lee tried to explain the gop's resistance. >> to republicans, the budget isn't just about dollars, it's about sense, common sense. >> in this case, common sense equals amendment-a-rama, as the senate debated the budget, republicans in the upper chamber went after their least favorite thing in the whole world, obama care. politico noted of the 100 amendments considered, more than 20 were related to health care, medicare or the health reform law. five amendments related to a k woman's right to choose. marco rubio's proposal t

. it was just last year that paul ryan wanted to end the guaranteed benefit of medicare and to give huge tax breaks to multimillionaires. and i just think that's wrong. he wants to do that again and the fact that, you know, just last year he wouldn't have balanced the budget until, i think, you know, 2040, now he wants to do it sooner by keeping all the taxes and revenue in obama care but repealing all the benefits. so it's a dishonest budget. and it's not going to give us the economic growth we need. we've got to put people back to work and we've got to balance the budget the right way. >> but should more be done on the messaging side for democrats? they were getting hammered for the fact that the senate was not able to pass a budget for many years until last week. should more being done to hammer home the point that we could be good fiscal stewards. >> luke, i know this is a political show and you talk to folks in washington, you come up to the hudson valley and there's not one person in my district that gives a hoot about that. they care whether the economy's growing, whether we'
